Saturday - April 11 - DVNP

You are invited along with us on one of the most difficult 4x4 trails in Death Valley National Park. We will meet at the Smith's grocery store parking lot one block north of the intersection of highway 160 and highway 372 in the heart of beautiful downtown Pahrump on Saturday, April 11. Plan to meet up around 7:45 for an 8:00AM sharp departure.

This trip includes a stop at Zabriskie Point...



Our dirt portion of the trip (about 60 miles from Pahrump) will take us up the easy, winding, and scenic Echo Canyon road to the Inyo Mine. There are numerous mine ruins to explore at the abandoned mine site and any high clearance vehicle should have no trouble to this point of the trip.



If you just want an easy scenic trip, you can return to the highway from here on your own.

From the Inyo Mine the trail dives further into and over the Funeral Mountains. You must get up a dry waterfall...



The waterfall is the difficult obstacle on the trip and can be done with open differentials and 33" tires. (OK... I haven't done it myself, but I've seen a TJ do it)

Beyond the waterfall, the trail runs down a rocky canyon to the old Lee's Camp townsite on it's way to Amargosa Valley and pavement.

Pack your lunch and camera!

You are subject to the park entrance fee of $20 unless you have a season or senior pass.

A great time of the year to visit Death Valley before it gets too warm, count us in. How long do you expect the trip to be from Smith's to Smith's?

So that waterfall is the most difficult section of the trail? Any more pics of the hard obstacles? I doubt I'll make it though, Saturdays don't really work for me.

You have to be a member.

"DESERT WRANGLERS" A Jeep Wrangler Club (Henderson, NV) - Meetup will forward you to the meetup site which hosts DW and other jeep / 4x4 clubs, however I do not believe a new member application will be accepted over the weekend before the run. Desert Wranglers is the most active club on there.

If you haven't already you should consider joining the Desert Wranglers. They have quite a few runs every month. And they have overnighters.

Next weekend there is a Logandale Shredder Trail run that I am signed up for.
